What better way for children to learn their ABCs and discover a little about Maine than with this vibrant and whimsical volume from Maine artist Susan Ramsay Hoguet. Illustrating distinct Maine icons such as moose, lobster and Mount Katahdin, the rhyming verse will have children singing it, asking for it to be read again and again, and learning their alphabet in no time. Hoguet has written and illustrated several children’s books including "I Unpacked My Grandmother's Trunk," "Solomon Grundy," "Next Time" and "Take Care,Tidy Lady" (written by Anne Lindbergh). For nearly 15 years she has run Animal Tile Works, specializing in creating handpainted tile accessories for children’s spaces. Her tile work has been featured in "This Old House," "Better Homes and Gardens," and "1,2,3 Tiling." She has also sold giclee prints and posters of the illustrations from "Maine ABC." She lives in Camden, Maine. Pre-order from Down East Books or amazon.com.
